  1. Promote Channel to Team

    It would be useful to be able to promote a Channel to become a Team in its own right. Typical scenario is where there is a Team with channels for a number of potential projects; when a project gets the green light, this will be assigned to a new Team. Would be useful to retain the existing Channel content to kick off the new Team.

    • Sub-Teams

      Ability to have sub-teams within a larger team chat structure. These sub-teams should receive notifications on issues that pertain to them while the rest of the team can see the messages but should not be notified.

      As an example, we have two teams(data management and tech support) that coordinate work together in a channel (support services team). When messages need to alert TS or DM but not both, there is no way to use @data management to notify only the relevant part of the team. We have to use @support services to get the attention of both.

      • Display channel members

        I know this can be seen on a separate screen, but if you're going to take the IRC model, don't leave out some of the best parts. I'd like to see a channel member list down the right side, like you can get in Slack and IRC. This could be especially useful in the integrated microsoft environment, plus I like to see who I'm talking to.

        • Microsoft Flow Action to Create Team

          Would be nice to have an Action in Microsoft Flow to Create a Team. Currently only the 'create channel' is available.

            Please add a screen printing (snipping tool) in teams so we can capture part of our screen to show our team members.

            • Re-order channels

              Is it possible to re-order the channels within Teams so that you can choose which channel to have first, e.g. with the most frequent traffic or highest relevance, rather than alphabetical order?

              Going one step further can channels with high traffic automatically feature first?

                • Teams Live Meetings - entrance and exit announcements

                  While holding a live meeting in Teams, when someone dials in to the meeting or leaves the meeting, their entrance and exit is announced to the group. This disrupts the flow of the meeting when someone is talking/presenting. Please allow the meeting facilitator to turn off notifications of members entering and exiting the meeting. In addition, the option of universal mute would be great, as unmuted participants can often result in echo feedback which disrupts the meeting.

                  • Deleting conversations in Channels by Owner

                    Hi,

                    if we have to delete any conversations happened in the Teams, Group owner should have that access, unfortunately only member (not an owner) is able to delete the conversation or message that they sent.

                    Can you look in to this ?

                    • Ability to search files within the Files tab in a Team

                      One good feature would be to be able to search in the Files section within a Team. You can provide a search button so we can search through the Files section without leaving the app.

                      • Bug? Uploading team logo does not always work

                        I experienced this error several times now. I created a new team and tried to upload a team picture. No matter which size or file type (png, jpg), I always get the message "Problem uploading your picture. Please try again later."
                        Then I created another team and the picture upload worked without any problem. After waiting approx. 5 minutes, uploading worked on the first team.

                        Why is that? Do we just have to wait some time before we add a team picture? Then some notification would ne nice when creating a new team.

                        Great work by the way! :-)

                        • Add archiving feature on Teams' posts

                          Considering that teams channel are sometime used for discussing projects, problems, long term plans, etc. in business regardless of the size. Having the possibility to archive an entire post (and its replies) either in an dedicated archive feature added to teams or give the option to send the post to a different teams / channel ( that would be used for various backup decisions or archiving data) would be a great addition to MS Teams.

                          This would go hand in hand with the search feature in Teams to easily find old post that would be relevant reference to a new…

                          • Allow "Do Not Disturb" or "Hide Alerts" for certain threads in a channel

                            In the More Options menu inside any channel, on any thread, can we get a "Hide Alerts" option for that particular thread? I know there are conversations I do not need to be bothered with and I'd like to shut notifications off for those particular threads. "Hide Alerts" "Do not disturb" something like that. I'd still like to get notifications from the channel for other threads that have not turned this option "ON" as they come in. Thank you.

                              • Adjust Team Picture (Reposition/Resize)

                                I find the lack of adjustment (positioning and zoom) annoying in Teams. I would like to be able to use a product/company logos for the team picture without having to manually crop/resize the pictures in microsoft paint using trial and error to get them to display nicely.

                                Pretty much all websites/chat programs has the functionality I have described. I have attached an example of the desired behaviour - available in Skype, but not available in Teams :(

                                  I wish the OneNote Notebook could be synced with the notebook in MS Teams. That way, changes to one it would make changes to the other.

                                    • Merge conversations within teams app and conversations of O365 groups within Outlook

                                      Hi team,

                                      title speaks for itself I think.

                                      For users it is totally annoying and not to understand, why we have two different "conversations" within O365 group functionality.

                                      Kind regards and carry on (Teams is awesome!)
                                      Daniel

                                      P.S.: Please add category "User Experience" to Uservoice new post option.
